The end of the bull markets: a year later. The aberration of Black Monday. The "Crash" as an historic event which ended the "four-decade historical continuum, … built on the twin assumptions of American military and financial hegemony." A new and more uncertain kind of economic, financial, and strategic environment. No evidence, upon travelling Canada, that politicians are discussing the important questions before the election. A discussion of Canadian and American elections. What the politicians should be telling the people as a result of the Crash. An examination of the Crash, its origins and influencing factors: an historical review. Why there was no economic collapse after the Crash. What the Crash did mean. How the Crash assisted the Canadian and American economies. Myths exploded by the Crash. Coming to terms with a new, undefined reality. An optimistic forecast.
